DC Universe’s Stargirl, which will also premiere on the CW; hasn’t revealed a lot, but we do now know about one classic villain who will appear in the show. According to creator Geoff Johns, we can expect to see Solomon Grundy make an appearance (Zoic Studios will render the villain):
While details remain under wraps for DC Universe’s Stargirl series, creator Geoff Johns has confirmed one classic villain that will appear.
“I’m glad there’s a little mystery to it; I don’t think everyone quite knows what the show is going to totally be about yet, beyond Courtney and discovering the legacy of Starman and this team coming together. That’s fun, knowing we have all these doors to open and cards to turn over and I can’t wait for people to see our Solomon Grundy. Our Solomon Grundy’s ridiculous! The visual effects house that’s done all the work for Stargirl is Zoic Studios and Andrew Orloff is one of the founders of it. The work they put in there, their team blows us away every time we do a visual effects review. Every time they deliver anything, all the different characters and the world that we’re tapping into, it’s phenomenal work. I can’t wait for people to see it, it’s truly a cut above the norm.”
Originally created in 1944 by Alfred Bester and Paul Reinman, Solomon was an enemy of the Golden Age Green Lantern Alan Scott. Since then, he’s been more associated with Batman.
Stargirl will arrive in the spring of this year – are you excited?
